Set Up Database User

Set up a database and user account for the
repository databases
Use the following rules and guidelines when you set up the user
  • The database user account must have permissions to create and drop tables, indexes, and views, and to select, insert, update, and delete data from tables.
  • Use 7-bit ASCII to create the password for the account.
  • To prevent database errors in one repository from affecting any other repository, create each repository in a separate database schema with a different database user account. Do not create a repository in the same database schema as the domain configuration repository or any other repository in the domain.
